Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Just a walking distance from downtown Banff, Fox Hotel and Suites is in Canada’s highest town, 4,800 feet above sea level. It is good value for a notoriously expensive ski town, with free underground parking, bus tickets, Wi-Fi, a continental buffet breakfast and boastful mountain views from some floors. After all, "few would deny that the Canadian Rockies are one of the most extravagantly beautiful ranges on Earth" (Fodor’s).

The building is reminiscent of an alpine lodge, with an abundance of wood and stone, a log fireplace in the lobby and a hot tub in the underground area. It is also home to a sauna, cold shower and small gym. The year-round hot tub is particularly unusual, styled as a recreation of Banff Cave and Basin with an open roof. Breakfast and dinner are served at the on-site Chili’s Grill, which specializes in large portions of classic American fare – think ribs, burgers, tacos and steaks. There is also a margarita bar in the lounge, a popular apres-ski scene destination.

Right outside the hotel is Banff National Park, a World Heritage Site with miles of mountains, lakes and rivers in the Canadian Rockies to explore. In winter, ski resorts Norquay, Lake Louise and Sunshine Valley are nearby. During the warmer months of the year, there are plenty of options too: hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking. Complimentary bus tickets will take you to sites such as the Banff Gondola and Upper Hot Springs.

Accommodations are mostly suites with small kitchenettes that include a microwave, fridge, toaster, coffee maker and one or two bedrooms. There are more basic rooms, though these are on the smaller side. The two-bedroom suites are ideal for families, with two bedrooms, a living room and a small kitchen nook.

Location was great. Nice mountain hotel.

One of the reasons I booked here was because of the hot tub (indoor/outdoor), however upon checking in I learned that it was closed for the weekend due to maintenance. Was not overly impressed to hear that. The walls of the hotel are quite thin. We could hear conversations of the people next door, and at night there was extremely loud music coming from the room below. If you're looking for a quiet mountain getaway I would recommend paying a bit more to stay in a different hotel to avoid the "mountain party crowds".

Beautiful hotel, hot pool was AMAZING. Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel was close to downtown Banff and offered free bus passes for outings. Continental breakfast was good, loved the waffle makers (which all worked...I've seen reviews saying they didn't). Hotel was quiet and clean. Underground parking makes it a great choice in the winter months.

We booked a single queen room, it was quite small but the general feel of the hotel, the décor and the location did not make that an issue. We did not plan to spend all of our time in the room anyways, so it wasn't a big deal.

We booked a room with queen bedroom, but the hotel gave us a room with 2 double beds. We complained at the hotel, but the front desk lady told us that customers through travelzoo don't get choose room, and we get what they have left. We even mentioned that we have a chance to get a room upgrade, but again, the lady told us that there is no room available other than you get now due to it was Friday night. We were so disappointed with the lady's negative response. Then we called travelzoo customer service. A lady on the phone tried to fix the problem. She phoned the hotel, then we got suit room with loft, but it was still with 2 doubles. We were happy with the travelzoo customer service, but not with the lady at this hote at all.
